Last quote by John McWhorter
Not all people understand that reviving a language–if one really wants it to live again in anything like the form that it once had–means getting people using it spontaneously in real life, including speaking it to their children. Art, and I would say especially music, is a great way to inculcate this ingrained sense of using the language, with real expressiveness, with the infectiousness of music and its sense of cultural authenticity.feedback

For white people, it is a great way to show that you understand racism is real. For black people and Latino people, it is a great way to assuage how bad a self-image a race can have after hundreds of years of torture. White privilege is real. The issue is that it shouldn't be used as something to shut down conversation, to inculcate unreligious people with a new sense of original sin.feedback
